Maximum Artist Creative Services was established by Cherylann Stephens in 2005 to fill the need for an agency representing hair, make-up and wardrobe stylists in the Nashville market. In 2009 MACS acquired AMAX, a well known Nashville Modeling agency founded in 1980.

Today MACS⎮AMAX is a full service agency representing fashion, commercial, and lifestyle models as well as actors and children in addition to hair, make up and wardrobe stylists. In 2012 MACS⎮AMAX added it's image board, SCOUT, under the direction of Ginny Edwards Maxwell.

MACS⎮AMAX models have been featured in campaigns for American Eagle, Ralph Lauren, Levi's, Nordstrom, Le Sportsac, and Billy Reid to name a few. Models have been placed around in cities around the world including New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, and Istanbul. Through a strong emphasis on both local and direct booking, as well as scouting and developing local models for international placement, MACS/AMAX has quickly risen to become one of the premier agencies in the Southeast.

MACS/AMAX currently has over 20 models placed in 12 cities worldwide. Current Macs/Amax stars include Hannah Davis (Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue) Liza Golden (Spring 2013 Gap campaign), Sarah Engelland (Saint Laurent Worldwide exclusive) Binx (Marc Jacobs exclusive, Miu Miu, Versace F/W 13).
